Professional Plumbers Melbourne
It can often be difficult to find a tradesperson who treats you fairly and charges you appropriately. Some take on more work than they can handle. Others don’t use the latest technology. Most don’t have a well-thought-out system for the processing of orders and the response to customer queries.
This is compounded when you are dealing with an emergency plumbing issue, high-cost replacements or upgrades like a water heater, or facing damage remediation on top of it all. You simply need to get in touch with a reliable service that can address your needs thoroughly and honestly.
We use the latest technology, deliver a top-class standard of customer care, operate a 24/7 emergency service, and have outstanding testimonials and customer reviews across multiple platforms. Moreover, we’re members of Master Plumbers and compliant with several major international standards for business and commercial plumbing excellence.
What do we fix?
How do I know if I need a plumber in Melbourne?
There are the obvious times when you’ll need a plumber. It’s hard to miss a blocked toilet or a burst pipe. But aside from the obvious, you’ll want to schedule yearly maintenance with a plumber to make sure that everything is in top working condition. You might also want to schedule yearly drain clearing services even if there is no obvious clog at hand. It’s better to keep them 100% clean so that the water flows properly and you benefit from the correct water pressure.

What are the advantages of using reputable plumbers in Melbourne?
A high-quality plumbing service can help in terms of preventative maintenance so you don’t run into problems down the line. You can get better rates if you work with a reputable plumber over the long term. All work should be done following the relevant Australian Standards. Even if you aren’t facing an emergency today, you’ll benefit from choosing a plumber that offers a 24/7 emergency service for when times get tough. Remember to query a new service so you can be certain you’re working with reliable, insured, licensed professionals.
How long does this service take?
Most services should take no longer than an hour or so for all the minor jobs like fixing a leaking faucet or unblocking a drain. Replacing a section of pipes can take 4 – 12 hours, as can installing showers and hot water systems. The project is going to take weeks and possibly months, as it will depend on many tradies working together to get things done in a particular order. However, you should look for quick and efficient service for all minor jobs. The faster the response time and resolution, the better, in most instances.
What is the cost?
The total cost will depend on the task at hand. You might pay $150 to unblock a drain or fix a leaky faucet. More involved projects like installing a hot water system will cost a lot more, usually between $500 – 2,000 depending on the type. Hourly, you can expect to pay between $80 – $100, though this cost will increase for emergency services.
Major jobs such as replumbing a home can cost between $5,000 – 15,000. While the most common jobs tend to be standardised in their costs (between $120 – 450), the variance rises with more specialised projects.

Frequently Asked Questions About Plumbers in Melbourne
All service providers work with the water supply systems of homes and businesses. This includes pipe repair and maintenance, drain clearing, new home piping, backflow testing, ATU installation and testing, and install of sinks, bathtubs, faucets and other fixtures. Of course, this list only scratches the surface of what plumbing experts can do. But the most common callouts are for simple issues like blocked drains and leaking faucets.
It’s important also to distinguish between plumbing and drainage. Plumbing is concerned with the intake of water into a premise, and drainage is concerned with the water flowing away from the property. They require different pipes and different solutions. But practically all plumbing professionals in Melbourne will be capable of dealing with both systems.
There are many ways to distinguish between a good plumber and a top plumber in Melbourne. Technology is one method. More modern companies will have advanced leak detection and pipe relining toolkits to get the job done more efficiently. Older companies often use deprecated technology and techniques, and you’ll want to veer toward those that are familiar with the latest technology. The quality of technology can play a large role in the efficiency of the service.
Of course, things like customer reviews, 24/7 emergency services, compliance accreditations, and the number of working professionals will also play a role in the quality of service supplied. It’s best to look at the whole picture as opposed to a few isolated parts.
The short and simple answer is no, you can’t. If you try laying your pipes, the insurance company is certainly not going to cover you in the event of an accident. The work has to be done in line with Australian Standards, and you’ll need a compliance certificate. There is very little work you are permitted to do without a licence in Melbourne, though you can replace a showerhead or jumper valve legally. What you can do is clean your drains regularly with a DIY solution and maintain the best water maintenance practices. Aside from this, call in the experts!
